Nuevo Vallarta and North Banderas Bay, Mexico – Best Places In The World To Retire – International LivingThere are a lot of people out cycling in Puerto Vallarta now, and it seems to really be, excuse the pun, picking up speed here. I’m not a cyclist, and you couldn’t put me on a bike in these towns, because no matter where you are as a cyclist, you would take your life in your hands on the highway. 
 
Going through Nuevo Vallarta, there are some amazing streets where you can go that are not heavily trafficked, and I know that a lot of people like to cycle there. We have a lot of cobblestone streets in Vallarta, which are not good for cycling. 
 
I see a lot of cyclists on highways, and sometimes I wonder, as I would anywhere, if it’s safe on a highway. There are no bike trails in the Bay of Banderas, and there are other things that are better in the Bay of Banderas than cycling, but I think we’re going to see some changes with that because cycling is really starting to grow quickly globally, but I wouldn’t put biking as high up there yet in Puerto Vallarta, as there are no bike lanes, and keeping in mind, we have a lot of cobblestone streets.

Bike lane in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico – Best Places In The World To Retire – International LivingMountain biking has always been big here in Puerto Vallarta. There are several different companies that offer mountain biking here. Road biking or biking in the city, in general, was terrible when we started out here six years ago but now there are bike lanes and for the first time, there are bike rentals for the day so it is definitely a lot better.
 
I wouldn’t say the biking in Puerto Vallarta is something like what you would see in Chicago but it is definitely in the turn around to that stage. Also, on Sundays here, they close down the main avenue, which is Avenida Mexico, from 9 AM to 3 PM. You can only go on the access roads from that point so the whole middle lane for about 4 miles, is just for biking and walking.
 
The biking culture is definitely on the upswing. Two specialty stores opened in the last couple of years and more and more bike shops are on the way.
